Seed Era (first 50 million years of the universe)
Threadwielder Era (13 billion - 6 billion years ago)
Era of Purpose in Guidance and Creation (6 billion years ago - now)
~5.9 billion years ago: Zalaagra
pioneers the notion of Actually Doing Things with the universe and actively seeding it with life, paving the way for the Draconics.
~~4.5 billion years ago
: Jeneth and Evenetra design Earth, with Evenatra providing concepts and ideas and Jeneth the Thread. Ysikary occasionally drops by to advise on details.
~66 million years ago: Disagreement as to how and whether to intervene with the next mass extinction event now that the dominant species is likely to be a hair's breadth removed from sapience drives the three Threadwielders apart. (Or, more dramatic
way of putting the same event: Evenatra elopes with Ysikary because Jeneth is a meanie.) Jeneth permits them to save a few specimen to a place of their choice
under the condition they don't actively bother him about it.
~64 million years ago: With a generous sample of ecosystem folded over to a different point in space (this is a lot more literal than it might at first sound), Evenatra and Ysikary decide to usher in sapience (gently but steadily) in their babies.
~50 million years ago: Efforts focus on two separate branches of the dominant class of creatures. Jeneth, driven by curiosity about the few fragments of communication sent out to the stars, pops by long enough to chide them for the stupid idea of trying to design two species that will be intellectual equals and predicts it will end in tears and to leave it the fuck alone. They don't listen. He decides he's had it with them.
~12 million years ago: The two genera responsible for the Nayabaru
and the Kavkema
as they are today come to be, albeit in scarce numbers, almost simultaneously (from a Threadwielder perspective).
~1 million years ago: The Nayabaru
and the Kavkema
attain what a Threadwielder would consider sapience: An ability and desire to intellectually dissect even the distant universe.
~50 000 years ago: Immersion into their respective cultures puts Evenatra at odds with Ysikary, since the species cannot coexist peacefully on intellectual levels. For a while, the two Threadwielders simply try to occupy separate climate zones with their cultures and go out of each others' way.
~20 000 years ago: In a timespan of roughly 200 years, the conflict escalates to the point that Ysikary decides to create Teranyina
, no doubt never actually intending to use her to harm Evenatra, just to get her to leave and find her own planet. We know how well that plan went.
~3 000 years ago: The current Nekenalos status quo has established itself: The Kavkema are near-extinct.
